Working on a Dell Dimension 4600 running WinXP Pro SP3. Can't seem to get the Video Settings in WMP 11 to work at all. They just jump back to the default settings whenever I try changing color or saturation. Tried various keyboard combinations but nothing seems to work. Anyone know the answer?

If you can't get the settings to change while viewing media, then the drivers may be restricting the controls. Try updating the drivers to the latest version. If that doesn't work then I'd recommend a much better media player program like the VLC media player.

If you mean that the settings are not saved after closing WMP, then that is normal. By design all of the video enhancement settings return to default every time WMP is started. Scott.

I've always used K-Lite for video and audio codecs. Do you know of a better one?

I do not know of a better one. I use that pack myself and the WMP controls work perfectly for me. Scott.
